When My Black Cat dumps rats at The Witch Doctor’s feet, it can be a real pain in the neck. This is especially true when the rats are related to paedophilia. They have to be sorted out and filed somewhere.
These rats are allocated to one of several piles. Most go into the fat pile called “The Conspiracy Theory Rats.” That’s the pile The Witch Doctor scans through to identify them as what she consider to be definite conspiracies. The Witch Doctor reads them, decides whether there might be a grain of truth that is driving the drivel, and places that possible grain of truth in the deepest recesses of her brain, that nevertheless can be retrieved if necessary.
Then the conspiracy rats get thrown into The Cauldron.
The other two smaller piles are:
The Plausible Rats
The Credible Rats
The Witch Doctor pays more attention to these piles and, just in case she needs them later, she pickles these rats in big jars rather than throwing them into The Cauldron.
Yesterday, in the last post, The Witch Doctor decided to have another look at a couple of these pickled Plausible / Credible rats dealing with paedophilia and shared them with you, so you could make up your own mind about The Truth.
In the age of the Internet, getting at The Truth can sometimes be difficult.
When using the Internet, no protocol will lead you to The Truth. Thankfully. Instead you have to use that great truth seeking organ – your brain.
Occasionally My Black Cat deposits a rat in The Spell Pantry that is put in a very special bundle.
That bundle is called “THE RELIABLE RATS”
This is the very small bundle that The Witch Doctor deliberates over and then deposits them in her big walk in safe in The Spell Pantry.
She has an important essay on paedophilia written by Nick Davies in what she considers to be her “reliable” bundle of rats.
You will probably remember Nick Davies as the investigative journalist who meticulously uncovered the phone hacking that resulted in the closure of the News of the World, The Leveson Inquiry, and the arrest of several well known names.
Here are his credentials:
“Nick Davies has been named Journalist of the Year, Reporter of the Year and Feature Writer of the Year for his investigations into crime, drugs, poverty and other social issues. Hundreds of journalists have attended his one-day masterclass on the techniques of investigative reporting, in Britain, Canada, China, Germany, India and South Africa.
He has been a journalist since 1976 and is currently a freelance, working regularly as special correspondent for The Guardian. He also makes TV documentaries; he was formerly an on-screen reporter for World In Action. His four books include White Lies (about a racist miscarriage of justice in Texas) and Dark Heart (about poverty in Britain). He was the first winner of the Martha Gellhorn award for investigative reporting for his work on failing schools and recently won the award for European Journalism for his work on drugs policy. Flat Earth News, his controversial book exposing falsehood, distortion and propaganda in the news media, was published as a hardback in February 2008 and as a paperback in January 2009. In May 2009, Flat Earth News won the first Bristol Festival of Ideas book award, to be given annually for a book which “presents new, important and challenging ideas, which is rigorously argued, and which is engaging and accessible.” It is now being translated into Thai, Vietnamese, Greek, Dutch, Slovenian, Ukrainian and Chinese. In November 2009, the University of Westminster made him an honorary fellow ‘for services to journalism’.”
In 1998, Nick Davies wrote an important essay on paedophilia in the UK.
You’ll find it if you Google his name.
If you can be bothered.
If you can’t be bothered then My Black Cat might put a link up to it tomorrow.
If she can be bothered.
What Nick Davies revealed in his article is pretty shocking.
